CHS boys’ golf duo clinches trip to 2A state tournament

Quick note from boys’ golf. Cedarcrest High School’s boys’ golf team will have a pair of competitors at next week’s state 2A tournament in Spokane after both qualified yesterday at the Northwest 2A District tournament in Snohomish.

Both Hayden Whetten and Nicolo Cammarano punched berths to the tournament next week. Whetten fired scores of 84 and 82 on the par-72 Snohomish Golf Course layout over two days Monday and yesterday to finish with a two-day score of 166, and Cammarano carded an 87 and 82 to finish with a two-day total of 169.

Both golfers will join the boys’ and girls’ golf teams from Mount Si High School to represent the Valley at next week’s state tournaments. The Wildcats qualified both teams to the 4A state events. We’ll preview that for you tomorrow.

CHS as far as we know did not qualify any girls this year to the state tournament. The 2A tournaments will be in the Spokane Valley, with the boys out at Liberty Lake Golf Course and the girls at Meadowwood Golf Course.

What to expect next week: Liberty Lake is a par-70, 6,600 yard layout so the CHS pair will face a challenging setup with its share of bunkers and water hazards like most courses they’ve played this regular season. With warmer weather and other conditions perhaps in the forecast, there’s not too many trees on this thing, so winds could also impact their efforts.

Both guys will compete Tuesday next week and if one or both finish in around the top 35 or so, they’ll compete on Wednesday as well.
